We all use the Pythagorean Theorem a great deal in math and physics. In case you've never seen a proof of it I created one and placed it on my website for all to read. It's athttp://home.comcast.net/~peter.m.brown/math_phy/pythagorean_theorem.htmI'm curious. I learned this several decades ago. I was wondering if anybody has ever seen this proof before? Thanks.

Yes, very simple beautiful. Who taught you that? hahahaha

Why not just measure a, b and c and calculate the sum of squares?

The strength of the classic Pythagoras proof is that it demonstrates that the theorem holds for all rightangled triangles and only rightangled triangles, with no allowance required for experimental error.

... may I use your proof to show off with peace?
